I had heard of the recent upgrade of the property and it didn't disappoint. Though the rooms are a bit small. they are well appointed. The Boltwood restaurant provides great food and service. Sazerac!

We stayed at the Lord Jeffrey Inn while visiting UMASS for my daughter. The hotel is beautiful and every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. The room was quaint and very comfortable and the bathroom was updated and attractive. The setting in the town of Amherst is idyllic and it was easy to walk to restaurants. We will... More

We had our wedding here and it was absolutely amazing! The food was perfect and so was our hotel stay. It was a beautiful night to remember! They were very accommodating for my gluten free allergy. We are actually going to celebrate our first year anniversary at the place where our story began.

This is a very relaxing atmosphere. We enjoy it every time we come and they are very helpful. The weather cut our trip short and we were able to leave early without penalty. If the Inn were just available for commencement weekend, it would be perfect.

We recently chose The Lord Jeffery Inn to host our multi-day event, and we couldn’t have made a better decision. Robin, Catherine, Mike and Jeff handled our requests for guest rooms, meeting space, and a welcome reception with grace and professionalism. The rooms were lovely, the food delicious and plentiful, and the wait staff very attentive to our guests’ needs.... More

External appearance are deceiving! The Inn looks good. It's right on the Amherst Commons. The lobby has some reasonable New England charm. However - the "suite" was actually a cramped little garret room. I could not stand up straight to get in and out of bed, because the ceiling was so low. (I'm 6' 0" tall). Then there was that...

On the surface, the Lord Jeffery Inn has several things going for it: a location smack in the middle of charming Amherst, walking distance to town and gown; a handsome Colonial-style exterior and common rooms; and a lively restaurant and bar on premises. When you scratch the surface, however, you find a pricey hotel with some surprising shortcomings. Both rooms... More

Walking distance to Amherst College and restaurants in town. Lovely rooms - ours had a sitting area that overlooked the courtyard and was very nicely appointed. There is free parking with the permit that they give you. Bathrooms are a bit small but still very nice Beds were very comfortable. Hotel is energy efficient and uses a card that shuts... More

Different members of our multigenerational family (7 of us, ages 12-82) have stayed here a couple of times this year to visit our daughter in college. While the Lord Jeff is pricier than some of its competitors in the area, we really appreciate the convenience of its location right in town and the wonderful sitting areas on the main floor....

We had a one night stay in order to tour Amherst college. The hotel was quaint and our small room with a small sitting room was spotless. The check-in desk clerks were friendly. We were informed at check in that the hotel restaurant was completely booked and unavailable for both dinner and brunch the next morning. It seems a bit... More
